    Hi donna

    How high do you mean when you say upper tummy? Digestive problems are common in menopause. I did have pain earlier in the year and had an endoscopy and all checked out fine. Sincee then the pain has gone, I think mine was stress related.

    Can you link it to anything, better after eating or worse etc. You could try an OTC antacid to see if that eases it but only use this as a short term measure before consulting your GP.

      Like you slightly to the left but I think a bit lower, below rib height. I tend to get IBS as well and had that going on too so it was not always easy to pinpoint. When GP put me on PPIs I started to get a real acid burn after 20 hours and that was higher up. My IBS has really calmed down (proabably helped by not eating any bread and not stressing about stomach cancer) but I still get acid reflux whilst I sleep, burnt feeling in the mouth and yucky taste.
